COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A delicate balance of toasted malt and fresh hops give this medium-bodied German style lager an intriguing complex flavor. A creamy head, deep golden color and an impressive hop bouquet make this a very special beer.

UPDATED: APR 21, 2013 Clear amber. Lasting small white head with some lace. Aroma is grassy, a little corn, butter, earth, caramel. Flavor is much the same. Body is light to medium. Mild bitter dry finish. This is a gateway beer - an ok one.

ROGUE (2099) - Newark, Delaware, USA - OCT 15, 2012
12oz bottle. Pours a clear copperish amber color with a light tan two finger head. The aroma has notes of bread, caramel, lightly toasted malts, and faint grassy hops. Tastes of caramel malts up front followed by a hint of sweetness and toffee. Moves to a nicely hopped ending that leaves a little bitterness under a lasting sweet finish. Thick in the mouth, very smooth and creamy.

cheap (4058) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 3, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2012 From a pounder bottle. looks like a darker hefe. A little soapy on the olfactory, but otherwise nuetral. Yes, vienna in nature, has that smooth malty thing going on, nearly has a gag reflex from the cloying sweetness which is so common in this style. Yes, seems a little higher in the alky content than listed. Vienna, a beer that takes some getting used to for me. Finosh is what else but sweet malty medicine. Not nearly as good as Atwater Rost or Spendrups Pistonhead Plastic Fantastic

adnielsen (9115) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Can @ home picked up at Wilbur’s Foco. Pours a clear dark orange appearance with a big, fluffy, cream colored head. Toasted malty, corn, herbal, husky, grainy, fairly bitter cracker aroma. Tangy, bitter woody, grassy, husky, grainy malty flavor. Kind of a rough texture. Tastes like shit to me, but so has everything else tonight, so fuck it.

On tap at Sprecher Restaurant in Middleton, pours a light clear amberish copper with a very thin head, aroma is of bread and malt with some caramel, the flavor is malty with a little bit of hops coming through in the finish, smooth mouthfeel, easy drinking and pretty good.

Can. Not my cup of tea. Pretty standard malt lager appearance, taste, and palate. Nothing special here.

12 oz can from Pick N Save in Racine, Kenosha’s big sister! Very nice Vienna style lager from one of our first microbrewers. Pours a coppertone with light wig. Gentle, small bubble carbonation. Aroma, taste and palate are a sweetly hopped bouquet of the brewer’s art Think: the girl from Ipanema at your lips! Compared to Capital Amber I have to give this the nod. Randy Sprecher’s benchmark offering now available in 12-pack cans, adding convenience for many of us. Very nice, Mr. Sprecher! Prosit.
